An apple a day keeps the doc away, or so they say. But what if you wear apple green, what will that do? Well green is the colour of nature, balance, and money. For those viewing this colour, it has great healing power. It is the most restful colour for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. So look confident and lean in green.

We have been wanting to do a purple window for you kittens for a while now,  and today is the day for the powerful hue to reign. We are forever inspired by Dame Elizabeth Taylor,  one whose favorite colours were purple and lavender. They are the colours of royalty, and that she was-Hollywood royalty. Her eyes were a rare violet and wearing this deep rich shade, we’re sure, made her eyes pop and sparkle. Pick purple for your next event and do the Dame.

Zebras know how to work a dashing look, refusing to be tamed like their horse cousins.  Why not take a cue  from our wild equidae friends and do a black and white print? If a full ensemble print is too much,  you can always mix and match like our centre Judy (or like this fellow).

Hermes love

There are some facts in life;  the sky is blue,  taxes are inevitable,  and all mothers love Hermes scarves. And we just happen to have recently received 5 beautiful, never worn, Hermes silk twill scarves all dating from the early 1980′s. Coincidence? We think not. Consider it the universe’s (or our) way of giving you a hint for this mother’s day. Please contact us for more info.
